Anxiety Relief.

I think we can all agree, anxiety sucks the proverbial… Anxiety can be hugely motivating in a stressful situation and can propel us forward into action but then the scale tips and the fear and uncertainty of anxiety begins to hold us back while our heart rate goes up, we lose our breath and get the shakes.

When you are in the grip of an anxiety attack it can be debilitating to say the least. Fear, self-doubt and emotional and physical responses take over, making it hard to rise above the noise, keep emotions in check and stay on course with life.

Let's Talk About Anxiety

Flight, Fright Or Freeze

The reason that anxiety happens is an evolutionary bodily function called flight, fight or freeze that operates within our nervous systems and flood our body with a whole heap of “stress” hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline.

This mechanism allowed for us as human beings to stay alive amidst some very rough conditions and meant that we could fight if we were under attack or run if we were in danger and couldn’t fight.

This was useful in caveman days when humans were prey to larger animals and so on but our modern version of the saber tooth tiger is anything that causes us worry.

As soon as we worry, we initiate our natural bodily responses of flight, fight or freeze.

Anxiety Symptoms

Anxiety symptoms range from mild to debilitating depending on the severity and the symptoms can vary from person to person.

On a physical level can cause increased heart rate, sweaty palms, shakiness and dry mouth to name a few.

In the long term it can cause digestive issues such as IBS, chronic fatigue, fibromayalgia and other serious health complications.

Emotionally, anxiety can cause teariness, irritability, anger, brain fog and a disconnect from our loved ones.

Hypnotherapy can help you to reduce the symptoms on a deeper inner level, by treating the cause, not just the symptoms, helping you to move forward with the creation that is your life.

Calm Emotional Responses

Hypnotherapy can help to calm the emotional esponses of anxiety in several ways.

It can help you to feel strong and remain calm, no matter the situation and help you to stay in the moment with clarity of thought so that you don’t get lost in in the what ifs and the fear.

Hypnotherapy can also help to reduce your sensitivity to triggers that pop up in your day to day life so that you can cope better and handle anything that comes your way with courage, clarity and control.

Ease Physical Symptoms

One of the scariest parts of an anxiety attack for many is the physical symptoms especially if you’re unaware of what is going on because the physical symptoms of an anxiety attack can often feel like a much more sinister physical health issue. Many pour souls have attended their local emergency department convinced they were having a heart attack.

To compound the matter more when already you’re in a state of worry during an anxiety attack, it’s easy for the mind to think that something is very wrong.

Of course, nothing is happening in the body that isn’t a normal reaction to having an anxiety attack, horrible as it feels.

Hypnotherapy can help to ease the physical symptoms as anxiety reduces and you gain control over your emotional state.

Balance Stress Hormones

A whole heap of hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline come into play when we experience anxiety, driving the fight, flight or freeze mechanisms and creating the physical symptoms we experience. Over time, these nervous system pathways become over stimulated or sensitive so that anxiety reactions occur more frequently and with greater intensity.

As hypnotherapy works along neurological pathways to ease anxiety, it also has the effect of helping to balance those stress hormones reducing the severity of attacks and the risk of long term damage to the body.

Signs You May Be

Battling With Anxiety

The pace of today’s world and the demands of life inevitably cause unease from time to time. Still, when this feeling turns to stress where you’re no longer functioning at your best, this could be a sign of underlying issues. Below are some of the symptoms to look out for that may indicate that you need to seek professional help:


When faced with unfamiliar situations, it’s natural for your heart rate to increase. If, however, you experience this for no apparent reason, it could result from anxiety caused by irrational fear. This condition can also manifest in more ways; sweaty palms, shakiness, a dry mouth, to more concerning health issues such as fatigue and IBS.


Another sign to look out for is experiencing brain fog. Your mind is so overwhelmed with thoughts that it affects your ability to do ordinary day to day activities because you’re under a constant cloud of confusion. Not paying attention to or addressing such a symptom could affect your memory to the extent that you cannot recall what’s necessary because your mind can’t distinguish between what information is essential and what to discard.


Not all mood swings are a result of anxiety. If your mood changes frequently enough to affect your well-being and negatively influence your relationship with others, you will have to reach out to a qualified person to help manage your irritability and sudden outbursts of anger.
